Poole, J., Aihie-Sayer, A., Cox, V., Cooper, C., Kuh, D., Hardy, R. and Wadsworth, M. (2003) Birth weight, osteoarthritis of the hand, and cardiovascular disease in men Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, 62, (10)

Record type: Article

The association between hand OA and male cardiovascular mortality was independent of age, education, history of workload, and body mass index.
